An armed robber held up a poker cage in the Bellagio Hotel & Casino on Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

The suspect, described as a white male wearing a mask, quietly walked over to the cage with a handgun around 3:45 p.m. and demanded an unspecified amount of money before fleeing, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

Cops said the teller remained calm and gave him the cash, hoping not to startle guests.

Officers arrived on the scene soon after, but the gunman was already gone.

Actor James Woods was apparently inside the Bellagio during the robbery and gave a first-hand account of it on Twitter.

 

 

Ironically, the casino has become a symbol for Las Vegas heists since appearing in the 2001 film “Ocean’s Eleven.” Unlike the movie, though, the suspect in Tuesday’s robbery was believed to have been working alone.
